Comment of the year

People are doing retrospectives.  OK, me, too.

In this post, I comment on getting my first gun, and of the psychological journey that ends in fully exercising your rights as a citizen, not a subject.  Guard Duck offers:
Oh great, we spend years telling people that guns are inanimate objects and here comes BP imbuing a lowly little .22 with the power to turn a serf into a freeman.

It's amazing how the most base of objects can be the 'philosopher's stone' of liberty.
There is no spoon.

I am the king of the world!*1 This is one night I wish I smoked and drank.*2 I just want to thank everybody I've ever met in my entire life.*3 It's like winning the golden dude. A great honor. Before I didn’t have the chance of the Jamaican Bobsled team of winning… now I do.*4 I don't know what I did in this life to deserve all of this. I'm just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream.*5

Seriously, thanks for the props Borepatch, and thanks for working so hard to give us such a smart, insightful and entertaining blog.
